Answers

the company should produce 5,200 / 0.5 = 10,400 beds, resulting in a gross profit of $3,692,000

Explanation:

The numbers are missing, so i looked them up:

                             sales price          variable costs       machine hours

Couches                    $550                    $350                    0.333

Beds                          $750                    $395                     0.5

total machine hours = 5,200

the constraint here is machine hours, so we must determine the contribution margin per machine hour:

couches = $200 / 0.333 = $600beds = $355 / 0.5 = $710

since the contribution margin per machine hour is higher for beds, then the company should produce 5,200 / 0.5 = 10,400 beds, resulting in a gross profit of $3,692,000

My day has gone pretty good so far, you for asking.
